Marzuki Darusman, the U.N. special rapporteur on human rights in North Korea, reports:
The numbers of slaves, working for dictator Kim Jong Un, “have grown.”
From slightly over 50,000 to more than 100,000.
They work not eight, but 20 hours a day, under constant surveillance, insuficient food, and harsh conditions.
With very little ($ 120 per month) or no payment.
The state is selling them as working slaves and makes between $ 1.2 and $2.3 billion a year.
This money is used to push the nuclear program, military equipment and gain cash for the elites.
Who employs them? China and Russia.
Some even work in the Middle East and Asia.
Most work in mining, logging, textiles and construction.
